8-Ball Pool Cheats And Tips
Everyday we're hustlin' with these great pool tips.
Miniclip's 8-Ball Pool is a great social game where you compete against friends and random players to win coins, which can be turned around to enter tournaments and buy additional items. For good measure, you can also practice and take part in mini-games to become a better player.
Here are some tips that will help you clear the table in no time.
How do I play 8-Ball Pool?
Use a finger to guide the cue stick around where you want to shoot the ball, and then use a power meter in the corner to guide your shot. Be careful going with power shots for single balls, as the white ball can easily roll into another pocket and cost you a turn.
Do you have to play online matches in 8-Ball Pool?
It's optional. There is an offline Practice mode where you can play with friends or take part in a Quick Fire match to sink as many balls as possible in a time limit. Each one costs you 25 coins to play, however, so make the most of these match-ups.
What modes are available in 8-Ball Pool?
The one you'll most likely use is Play 1-on-1, where you'll get matched up with a random opponent to try and win coins. It costs 25 coins to enter. There's also a Tournament Mode where more skilled players step up for higher stakes, as well as a Play With Friends mode, where you can play against friends on your roster. Play Minigames is also available, but these are just a game of chance where you can win goods, like new cues and increased powers.
What powers are available in 8-Ball Pool?
There are three. The first is Extend Aim Guidelines, which increases the line of sight to where your ball will go. The second is Increase Maximum Spin, which will pick up the spin rate on your ball. Finally, there's Increase Overall Power, which you can use to put a little heft behind your breaks and power shots. The best one here is the Extend Aim Guidelines, mainly because it'll tell you how to make a better shot overall.
What mini-games are available in 8-Ball Pool?
There are two - Daily Spin and Scratch and Win. Daily Spin is like a jackpot mini-game where you can win extra cash, while Scratch and Win provides rewards via lotto tickets. These usually cost a good amount of cash to buy, so save it for when you really want to play.
Do I need to pay for anything in 8-Ball Pool?
Eventually. Playing any game in 8-Ball Pool usually requires a 25 coin buy-in, and you'll need cash to upgrade to new cues or buy Minigames. Both can be purchased separately using real money, with coins going anywhere from $1.99 (for 1,250) to $99.99 (for 125,000). The same goes for cash, ranging from $1.99 for 10 to $99.99 for 1,000. The choice is yours, but win some virtual money before investing.
